Journalist from Fermanagh enters Big Brother house

A gay journalist from Fermanagh is one of the 10 housemates in the new series of Big Brother.

Reporter Christopher Hall (23) has joined a devout Catholic and the woman who claims to have bedded Manchester United star Wayne Rooney while his wife was pregnant.

Christopher said he admires people with strong opinions and said during his time in the house he "won't hold back and wants to let loose and have no regrets".

He has never had a relationship but looks forward to "building something special with the right man".

Hall admits to overindulging at the weekends and after a heavy night out he says: "I wake up in need of a wheelchair and a bacon sandwich, wishing I was dead."

The 10 housemates, who will be joined by another six today, also include a Playboy model, a journalist and a singer who performed with Kylie Minogue.

Liverpudlian Mark Byron received a reward of £5,000 within an hour of being in the house after Wolverhampton singer Pauline Bennett was voted to be the "power housemate" and given a "power trip" to choose housemates to punish and reward.

Bennett, who performed on Kylie Minogue's single Shocked under her stage name Jazzy P, chose to reward Bryon and punish Hertfordshire man Matthew Davies.

His punishment was to be completely excluded from the first night of the show, trapped in a glass box until further notice.

Among the housemates is Helen Wood, who hit the headlines following allegations she had sex with England and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney while his wife was pregnant.

The 27-year-old from Bolton describes herself as "the class clown" and says she has been celibate for almost a year.

She said: "Let's just say, I've learned a lot about myself from celibacy."

She is joined by Essex boy Winston Showan and headhunter Tamara Stewart-Wood, from London.

Also in the house is Glaswegian Danielle McMahon who says her career as an underwear model does not clash with her devout Catholicism.

The 25-year-old said she might clash with "liberal girls" who tell vulgar stories and described herself as having "class, flair and charisma".

Other housemates include Californian Kimberly Kisselovich, a Playboy Bunny who also works as a lawyer, and Steven Goode from Hertfordshire.

The Channel 5 show, hosted by Emma Willis, also features former Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan, who is presenting the spin-off show Bit On The Side.
